We went here with our four year old on a damp, yet warm day and had a great time. The zoo covers a wide area and the majority of enclosures looked to be a decent size. The animals seemed pretty contented. There were quite a...More

We arrived and were initially excited to see the animals, particularly the lions which were very close and the crowds had an excellent view. Then on to the polar bear - again, initially this was met with fascination but this quickly turned to upset. The...More

Wonderful zoo the animals are up close and hence lovely to see. The polar bear and the brown bear were the highlight of our trip. The place is big yet small enough to see easily with kids. Lots of places for a snack / picnic.

Well worth a visit. Thought we'd only spend a couple of hours in there but were there most of the day. Polar bears were stunning, watching them swim through an underwater viewing area. Giraffes, baby hippos, elephants, rhino, chimps etc Easy to navigate round the...More

If you have been to any bigger zoo ever - skip it. It's nice but compared to everything else you have to see in Copenhagen it's not worth it since it takes a lot of time. The Arctic area is nice with polar bears swimming...More

Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find
Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in
itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here
there are several fine theaters, from the experimental
to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which
specializes in transcribing the great London and New
York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several
years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find
